February is a big month for my family. It’s jampacked with festivities. There’s Valentine’s Day, our wedding anniversary, and it’s The Hubs’ birthday. To make things easier on us, we have minor celebrations, then at the end of the month, or early March, we have one big celebration. This year, we decided to celebrate with a Lobsterworthy dinner for the seafood lovers in us.
On the day of my hubs birthday, we went to the Red Lobster in the Sports Arena area of San Diego to check out the Lobsterfest. Yes, my friends, it is back. I can almost hear you all cheering! This year, they have four new dishes and five favorites entrées. New appetizers, new desserts, and new drinks to complement the meal. This is the Lobsterfest Fizz, and it is tops! Such a delightful and refreshing cocktail made with vodka. Yum!
For an appetizer, we had the Chilled Lobster and Shrimp Cocktail. Goodness. Gracious. Sakes alive! It’s a light and fresh way to start the meal. I could eat this all by myself, but it’s the Hubs’ birthday. I let him have a piece. (All he was saying was “give piece a chance.”)
I ordered the Lobsterfest Surf and Turf. A big piece of juicy and flavorful meat cooked just the way I like it (medium rare). A succulent lobster tail in a creamy butter sauce and shrimp. That creamy dreamy butter sauce… Can you say YUM?!
The Hubs ordered the Lobster Lover’s Dream. This plate was massive! It has different flavors. Roasted lobster, split lobster tail, lobster and shrimp linguine alfredo. Fit for a king, or in the case, the birthday boy! 🙂
Last but not least, an ice cream sundae with a lit candle as well as a birthday song for the birthday boy sung by some wonderful servers at the restaurant. He blew out the candle and made a wish. I suspect that his wish was for another dish of lobster.
Happy birthday, Christopher! You’re older and more distinguished (and not extinguished). Love you mucho!
